“A charming, friendly hostel with lovely, helpful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2009

I am shocked to see that this place has received a bad review. For a hostel, the place has great facilities - free internet access, DVD collection, and even TV in private rooms, which you would only normally find in a hotel, and the breakfasts were lovely - typical Oaxacan food included in the price of the stay - I don't understand the complaints at all.

I stayed with my boyfriend for 2 nights in a private room, and had a really nice time, the staff were extremely friendly and could not have been more helpful. - For example, we arrived very early in the morning having caught an overnight bus from Chiapas, and as our room was unoccupied, we were allowed to check in 5 hours early, and were given breakfast that day free of charge (which we shouldn't have been entitled to). They also helped us plan trips around the area, recommending things to see and do.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a reasonably priced hostel in Oaxaca with a friendly atmosphere.

Great place to rest for a few days.It is at walking distance from the Zocalo at a real mexican neighborhood. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are quite new. The breakfast is good and different every day.

We weren't very impressed with the Nizadu. It's clean and fairly quiet in terms of street noise (tho the walls between the rooms are thin). But the rooms are small, spartan to an extreme, and dark, the only window opening out onto a narrow corridor. The breakfasts were unappetizing, and the location isn't great, quite a ways from downtown. The manager is very nice but didn't honour our reservation (even though we had paid a deposit) but I think that was due to inexperience. Maybe if it were half the price ..... since for the same money you can get a much nicer hotel.
